Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain is headed to the 15-day disabled list. SOURCE: Andy McCullough, Kansas City Star
Insight: He suffered a Grade 1 groin strain in Wednesday night's extra inning win over Houston. That's good news for Jarrod Dyson, who will take over center field duties during Cain's absence.
 
8/17/2013 9:05:00 AM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain left Wednesday night's game in the 10th inning due to a groin strain.
Insight: Too bad, as Cain is off to one of his best start in four seasons with Kansas City, batting .333 through his first dozen games. He could miss a few days with Jarrod Dyson likely to see more playing time.
 
8/14/2013 11:31:00 AM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain, sidelined by a strained left oblique, has no current timetable for returning to the field.
Insight: Cain is only hitting .261 for the season and the team is getting good mileage out of Jarrod Dyson and David Lough.
 
8/1/2013 11:21:00 AM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain is back in the lineup Thursday against Minnesota. He's missed the team's last three games because of a groin injury.
Insight: Maybe Cain's .714 lifetime average versus Scott Diamond had something to do with the team's decision to bring him back today. Cain is only hitting .259 for the season but he should be able to improve that Thursday against Diamond.
 
7/4/2013 5:25:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain had a big day Thursday versus the Indians.
Insight: Cain went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI. The outfielder hit just .183 (19-for-104) with 29 K and a .540 OPS in 29 games from May 25 to June 30, but he has started off July by going 3-for-7 with five RBI, a walk and no strikeouts in two games.
 
6/25/2013 4:58:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain is not in Tuesday's starting lineup and hasn't played since Saturday, though we aren't aware of any injury problems.
Insight: It appears that Cain will have to fight for playing time the rest of the way with Jarrod Dyson, David Lough and Jeff Francoeur.
 
6/16/2013 11:25:00 AM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain is getting a day of rest Sunday.
Insight: Cain is 1-for-12 in three games since hitting a game-tying two-run homer off Jose Valverde in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday. He should be back in the lineup Monday at Cleveland.
 
6/12/2013 8:34:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain hit a game-tying two-run homer off Jose Valverde in the ninth inning Wednesday.
Insight: The Royals were shut out by Justin Verlander but tied the game up in the ninth and won it in the 10th. Cain hit .320 over his first 124 at-bats of the season, but that was only being sustained by a BABIP close to .400. He's down to .285 after hitting .229 over his last 83 at-bats.
 
Hot5/16/2013 10:01:00 AM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-5 with two doubles, three RBI, two runs and a stolen base Wednesday against the Angels.
Insight: Cain's line-drive rate is good, but not spectacular (21.8 percent), so he has been extremely lucky to have a .390 BABIP. He's still a solid fantasy option, but sell high if you can.
 
Hot4/20/2013 8:04:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain had four hits, including two doubles and a solo homer, Saturday against the Red Sox. Cain also stole a base and scored three runs.
Insight: Cain has collected multiple hits in four straight games (11-for-16) and is hitting .392 with two steals. The Royals have moved him up to fifth in the order over the last three games.
 
Hot4/17/2013 10:07:00 PM
Description: Kansas City Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain had three hits Wednesday against the Braves to raise his average to .340.
Insight: Cain is 14-for-33 (.424) with two doubles, four RBIs and a steal over his last nine games.
 
2/18/2013 2:28:00 PM
Description: Kansas City Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain will be sidelined for a couple of days with a right hand injury.
Insight: Cain injured the back of his right hand during drills in the batting cage but it isn't serious. Injuries limited Cain to 61 games last season but he did hit seven homers with 10 steals. A lot was expected of him last season, but the expectations are much lower this time around and he might be a reasonable gamble later in the draft.

Description: Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain missed batting practice Sunday with a right hand injury. SOURCE: Bob Dutton, KC Star
Insight: Cain injured the back of his right hand during drills in the batting cage but it isn't believed to be a serious concern. Injuries limited Cain to 61 games last season but he did hit seven homers with 10 steals. If Cain wins the starting CF job in spring training, he could be worth a pick as a fourth outfielder with upside.
 
9/14/2012 8:33:00 PM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain will miss the rest of the season with a strained right hamstring.
Insight: He'll end the 2012 campaign with seven homers and 31 RBI in 61 games played. Jarrod Dyson (.270, 0 HR, 9 RBI) is also injured so Jason Bourgeois (.324, 0 HR, 4 RBI) will likely be the everyday center fielder the rest of the season.
 
7/21/2012 11:16:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain has 13 hits and nine RBIs in nine games since he returned from the disabled list. Cain went 3-for-4 with three RBIs Saturday.
Insight: The Royals outfielder was a deep league sleeper in the preseason but he started of 2-for-15 with five strikeouts and then went on the disabled list for three months so he's been mostly forgotten. Keep him on your radar and see if he keeps this up for longer than a week before you make a move.
 
7/9/2012 10:50:00 AM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain (groin) is expected to return to the Kansas City lineup right after the All-Star break.
Insight: Cain was struggling to bat his weight when he was injured a week into the season (.133), but is talented. Whether he can play at a high level after missing 2-3 months is another question.
 
6/22/2012 2:57:00 PM
Description: Barring any further setbacks, Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain (groin) should return just before the All-Star break.
Insight: Cain was struggling to bat his weight when he was injured a week into the season (.133), but is talented. Whether he can play at a high level after missing 2-3 months is another question.
 
4/25/2012 5:17:00 PM
Description: Lorenzo Cain had a setback with his injured groin during his rehab stint on Tuesday, according to the Kansas City Star.
Insight: Cain was scheduled to return on Friday but it looks like he'll be out a tad longer, as Royals GM Dayton Moore said Cain suffered another strain.
 
4/23/2012 6:45:00 PM
Description: Lorenzo Cain is tentatively scheduled to be activated from the 15-day DL on Friday by Kansas City, Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports.
Insight: Cain was a sleeper coming into the season after a torrid spring, but a slow start and an injury has quelled that thought.
 
4/11/2012 12:25:00 PM
Description: Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain is expected to miss Wednesday's game against Oakland after straining a groin.
Insight: Cain had a great spring, but has struggled when the games started to count. He's batting .133 with a .310 OPS. If he wasn't hurt, you would be forced to put him on your bench anyway.
